Who Am I Fooling? Can't count on things to flourish in this world of insanity I've got some Lucky Pants now and a penchant for profanity You'll all do fine without me there's a silence I can't break through my luck is stolen property I'm temporarily enjoying the view (chorus) Who am I fooling? To believe it would work out the simple life is a lonely road paved by hope and doubt A parade of best friends around me while I'm left alone to die It's just another memory I don't want to make and another tear I don't care to cry Keep saying things I don't want to hear and you won’t ever come my way and you won't drink my case of the blues because the label bears your name (Chorus) Future's up in the air at least it ain't in the ground even if it's just me a loner can't be let down A parade of best friends around me while I'm left alone to die It's just another memory I don't want to make and another tear I don't care to cry (Chorus)

I Sang Alone 02:34
I Sang Alone I sang alone You were gone Never to stray. You're on your way To greet the day I'm on my own. (Chorus) Last time I loved you we said You had the right to stay the right to stay the right to go Don't leave our path this way with no certainty of knowing I don't need to doubt I need to know I need to know. So you know the love you show Fills up my life. On my own I set a tone I see the light. (Chorus)

Love Won't Fade When the storm winds blow And there’s no answer waiting When you or I are gone This love will never be fading Looking out a window Over neglected oceans Remembering how we fell there In the sands of new emotion (Chorus) Love won’t fade It's the charade If we use our hearts We’ll have it made Change ain’t strange Our mountain range Is in our hearts And nothing will be torn apart Touring out to Nashville North from the Mississippi Playing unknown classics For the big shots and the hippies They can’t tell us We don’t know what we’re doing We’ll touch the right people It won’t be us they’re screwing (Chorus) Standing in shadows Nobody set on us Time to shine Beyond these days as we must The sands blow around Castles made of promise We leave them standing Through the years of dramas Eventually the strong Will not be torn apart Like a castle in the sand It takes an open heart (Chorus)
4.
Sad Man In The Corner I wish they knew my story But there's silence in the dark I have hard luck in my bones And sad songs can hit their mark These days you'll find me hiding No tears are shed to dry I'm the sad man in the corner And a good song makes me cry My friends have all left me Things I did or said Family is long gone Job left me for dead The circus here around me Is a world living a lie If you want any reaction A good song makes me cry The superstars come and go With the money egos thrive And the memories they conjure Of me sitting in these dives Tolerating shoe gazers Who hide while truth sits by I listen between the cracks

Sonny Boy Williamson Blues Well you know baby I'm so tired So tired of rotting all alone Well baby I'm so tired I'm tired of rotting all alone I'm gonna live til I die baby I'm gonna go somewhere I belong I'm gonna live til I die I'm gonna live til I die I'm gonna live til I die I'm gonna live til I die babe I'm gonna live til I die I'm so tired of being alone. Nobody really know me Nobody care if I come or go Nobody really know me Nobody care if I come or go Well you know they're always kidding to me and they don't say nothing to me no more Well it seems that I go out there and I'm always on the limb But I know I'm gonna find my way someday I'll be born again I'm gonna find my way Gonna find my way to my home No more rotting sitting here crying because nobody cares if I come or go. Well my mama's the only one Who seems to give a damn she don't lock me out of the house when I don't have too far to land I know I'm gonna come I know I'll come back her someday Just to see my mother yeah and then I'll be back on my merry way.

You don't care I can tell by the way you do it Feel free to let me if I'm just another man that done blew it Well you know honey I got less women than I got balls If you don't want me Tell me baby I'm getting calls. If you don't want me baby please tell me I'm getting calls Tell me baby you know that I been getting called. Well tell me now baby tell me I'm getting calls.

Chickens Of Love Chickens of love yeah those chickens of love out with the black crow in with the dove because I just want to lay here with the chickens of love They walk so funny they make such sound yeah you never know baby why they always around These chickens of love yeah these chickens of love out with the ravens in with the dove with the chickens of love Chickens always make me smile make me laugh half the while well every time I see one walk by laugh so hard that I think I might die yeah well I always like them living it up yeah they make me want to spill a bit more seeds from the cup yeah because they're the chickens of love chickens of love out with the raven and in with the dove with the chickens of love.
9.
Between Desire and Despair Roland paid his dues until there were no dues left to pay He played a game as a bartender and he found himself a place to stay his old man always shot him down and his mother never stuck around he knew he had a heart somewhere below the ground He trashed his room one night hard luck with a girl that shook him cold he passed a police barricade driving without a license in a car he stole he didn't expect he'd live to find a better road than the one he'd blown down he was dreaming of a heart somewhere below the ground (Chorus) Somewhere below the ground he dreamed was a heart to make him care where he'd forget the pieces and the shattered dream laid bare and see beyond the guessing game of a life beyond repair and make sense of all this loneliness between desire and despair Roland gave up on dreaming and was sent to serve his time how can you mend a fractured soul with survival on your mind? he'd got out and he gave up on welfare on the slums he didn't care if tomorrow morning comes So many miles from forgiveness so many miles from a dream His laughter only comes from him when he's witnessed the obscene there's no better time than bottom to turn a life around when you can't even dream of a heart below the ground. Chorus
10.
Your Happiness Will Bring Me Tears I taught you a lesson now you're all married while I yearn for some grace in this disgrace you have good karma I'm bound to be lonely I miss you but why my love has no trace so why am I sad to see you rub it in you found love I'm still out here treading I think it's a secret you've kept all these years Your sorrow won't work on me here's hoping happiness will bring me tears As I wait here for another loose end to be tied while another heart breaks at the end of a ride you're the catch of the batch my hindsight so cursed I've made a few million but I'm losing my shirt so you're the winner now since we said so long to agree with you then we'd both be wrong the secret you kept all of these years your sorrow don't work on me here's hoping your happiness will bring me tears (Bridge) You looked like the answer to my prayers But still I paid for my never ending round trip affairs

My Heart's A Border Collie My heart's a Border Collie Stranded in your cage suspended in skies in limbo beyond your fields of sage you want me to be playful obedient and kind my heart's a Border Collie too wound up to unwind Let me run in your sage field chase your frisbees in the sun run your squirrels up trees then I'll be some fun right now I'm just stranded Maybe someone will set me free If someone wants a Collie I'm good company My heart's A Border Collie stranded in your cafe suspended in skies in limbo beyond your fields of sage you want me to be playful obedient and kind my heart's a Border Collie too wound up to unwind I wonder where life's going up in this cage I'll stay The lesson seems so simple try to find a way my desire's the enemy seems this bad dog wants it all but my heart's a Border Collie I'll be there if you call my heart's a Border Collie my heart's a Border Collie my heart's a Border Collie my heart's a Border Collie my heart's a Border Collie my heart's a Border Collie
